This is the most productive time of year in the huerta, but also the messiest. We have surrendered to the weeds, in acknowledgement that the veggies are growing healthily and who cares if the weeds are healthy too. We have an abundance of long thin Spanish green peppers, and a good crop too of aubergines which hang like purple earrings.
